How to recognize your best Facebook group members by giving them Group Expert status

award medalDo you have key members of your Facebook group who consistently give good advice or lend their expertise to other members?

Have you always wanted to recognize them?

Good news! Now you can! 

Typically you’d want to give a person group expert status because they’re active in the group and known for their expertise in something – even if that expertise is simply just in the group. They might be very knowledgeable about the group’s subject matter or they may just be helpful and knowledgeable people in general!
